Ford Escape Hybrid & Mercury Mariner Hybrid – Red Triangle / MECS Pump Failure
Chimicles Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith LLP (CSK&D) is investigating a potential class action lawsuit on behalf of owners and lessees of model years (MY) 2005-2008 Ford Escape Hybrid and 2006-2008 Mercury Mariner Hybrid vehicles. These hybrid vehicles may suffer from a design defect in which the “Motor Electronics Cooling System” (MECS) pump within the vehicle fails prematurely. This may cause the vehicle to exhibit a “High Motor Temperature” and/or a “Red Triangle” display warning light.
Some owners and lessees may have been required to undergo costly repairs of the MECS pump and related items due to this potential design defect. If you have experienced any of the above problems with your Ford Escape Hybrid or Mercury Mariner Hybrid, please contact the attorneys below.
